OVERVIEW

Myrtlewood body and top offer plenty of sweetness, balance and projection with this versatile performer.

The combination of the myrtlewood top with the Breedlove Bridge Truss allows for the Oregon Concert 12-String to create a symphony of music to fill any room or concert hall. With the asymmetrical headstock equalizing string tension, the Delta pinless bridge making it easier to change strings, and the bridge truss lessening overall string tension, the Oregon Concert 12-String is one of the easiest to play and best-sounding 12-strings ever.

Body Shape
The Breedlove Concert is the original Breedlove shape. It first appeared in 1992, and has been the best-selling Breedlove body shape ever since. Designed specifically for the fingerstylist to be well balanced, compact, and comfortable to play, it generates a wonderfully articulate range of tone with an ample low end that is never boomy, but always felt. The unique construction also allows the Concert to sing even at a full strum. If you’re a fingerstylist, or are seeking an instrument to use as vocal accompaniment, this is the shape for you. The Concert is engineered to provide exceptional sustain with a pronounced bass response, both of which can be achieved with a light touch. The graduated top works in harmony with the Breedlove Bridge Truss to provide an even response throughout the lows, mids, and highs, with sustain, and clear, concise, note-for-note projection.

Breedlove Neck
Breedlove guitar necks feature a slimmer neck profile, which enables comfortable play, even with smaller hands. Unlike traditional dovetail neck joints that require major surgery for a neck re-set, it is easy to adjust the play action and neck angle with the Breedlove bolt-on neck and single-action truss rod. The hand-rubbed, semi-gloss Breedlove neck finish contributes to ideal playability – the finish process alone takes three days, including precise finish coat applications, fine sanding, and hand buffing and rubbing.

Asymmetrical Headstock
The asymmetrical headstock is featured on CM, Concert, Auditorium, and 12-String body shapes. This headstock isn’t just a pretty shape – it’s specifically designed to keep the strings in a straight, even line from the nut to the tuning pegs. The result is even tension, stable tuning, and ease of alternate tuning.

Back and Side Woods
Myrtlewood, umbellularia californica, formerly oreodaphne californica, originates in the western United States in Northern California and Oregon. Myrtlewood offers a strong fundamental with a powerful voice. Similar to maple, it has a clear and bright voice with superb projection and sustain, and offers a full and balanced sound. A versatile non-traditional tonewood, it is a favorite for many styles of playing. Myrtle has very unique and widely varied figure – no two sets are alike. Coloration ranges from blonde to taupe.

      Comments about Breedlove Oregon Concert 12-String E Myrtlewood Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      I've been playing guitar for 30 years. This guitar is absolutely gorgeous and sounds fantastic. The only thing that is wrong is the factory saddle height was not adjusted at all making the action ridiculously high. Couple that with a factory set of medium tension strings and it is darn near impossible to play. I understand that the factory probably does this so that the player can shave the saddle to desired height but it should come from the factory playable at least. Other than that the quality and craftsmanship is perfect. There's not a single flaw on this guitar. The myrtlewood makes it very unique and the reason I bought it. The neck shape is comfortable and no jagged frets up the fretboard. The sound is rich with big bass response and smooth mids and trebles. It's just right. I had a Martin that had an over the top boomy low end but this guitar is much more balanced in tone. I love it very much and this is the acoustic I will grow old with. I just dinged it one star for coming from the factory with unplayable action.
